I showed this block last week with promises to show the finished block, well not completely finished but the part I'm doing is now done. So here is the block I received to add borders to. I took this to my stitching group to ask them if they had any suggestions. They had absolutely nothing to say about the block, not even a little suggestion and so I was stuck to come up with something myself. Hmmm....not sure what that was all about.
Anyway, here is what I did with the block. I added the dark blue narrow border and put it on point with bluework embroidery in each corner. It's hard to see in the picture but one corner has a bird house, two corners have birds and one corner has a birds nest. They are all different. I hope the owner of the block will like what I did. She will now get it back and add whatever she likes to finish it off.
Here is a close up of the birds nest with eggs.

A little sunshine to brighten your day. I picked up this little cup of mini daffodils at Safeway.
Next post will be more PDG's, (pattern found here) I know some of you reading my blog are waiting patiently and some not so patient, I shouldn't mention any names, but she knows who I'm talking about...teehee. The "Sewing Chair" block...is coming soon.
